Microwave-assisted synthesis method enabled the preparation of the (tris-acetylacetonate)(2,9-dimethyl-4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthrolinate) terbium(III) (Tb(acac)3(dmdpphen)) complex with outstanding high green luminescence. This method is appropriate for green chemistry and energy-saving processes. The Tb(acac)3(dmdpphen) complex has good thermal stability. Emission peaks are assigned to the f-f transitions of the Tb3+. The Tb(acac)3(dmdpphen) complex is expected to be used in functional materials of electronic products.
